Stanwell Park has a fascinating history

Jacaranda House is situated between two natural creeks Stanwell and Hargraves Creeks and two of the first houses owned by famous Australians. Sir Thomas Mitchell built the first house in Stanwell just down the road from Jacaranda house and it overlooks the main beach and two lagoons that are fed by the creeks. Sir Thomas was Australia's first Surveyor General who discovered and mapped much of the early colony. He declared Stanwell Park the jewel for where he wanted to reside. Just up the road in the other direction is 'Hillcrest', where Lawrence Hargraves first designed his box kite that lifted him 16 feet off the ground hence the name of the local cafe and led directly to the Wright Brothers' ability to take the first heavier than air powered flight. Indeed the first commercial airplane ever built was named in honour of Lawrence's remarkable contributions. As an interesting aside, two houses up from Jacaranda is Articles Art Gallery, originally the second Mitchell House and later the first Guest House in Stanwell Park opposite the first location of the railway station and nearby the famous rail line viaduct. In honour of this history, Jacaranda House has a gallery of historical photographs.
